So my wife and I both have Garmin Edge 500s, and we ride together fairly often. I'm consistently shorter on distance, even though we ride the exact same route, and start them at the same time. Doesn't really matter, but I found it curious since we were always riding the same route and was wondering if anyone else had noticed this before.
For example, today's mountain bike ride:
Mine: 14.9 miles
Hers: 15.6 miles
A previous ride:
Mine: 9.2 miles
Hers: 9.5 miles
Looking at the routes, I can't see any noticeable difference, and we both have ours set to pause very low - 1.0 mph or so, and this was a faster trail, so I just didn't miss an entire section.
